In scripture, there are actually four concepts that the word "earth" can refer to:
- 1. Earth can refer to the planet we live on (Genesis 1:1 - Hebrew 'erets; Greek - ge).
- 2. Earth can refer to the land or dirt (Genesis 1:10 - Hebrew 'erets; Greek - ge).
- 3. Earth can refer to the geographic boundaries of a kingdom or nation (Matthew 24:14 - Hebrew - tebel; Greek - oikoumene).
